Healthy Snacks To-go

Bring Healthy Snacks
Most of the food options at the beach are not necessarily the healthiest, which is why it’s important to plan ahead and pack your own!
Good examples:
• Raw or dry-roasted nuts
• Pre-washed and cut fruit and veggies
• Whole-grain crackers
• Whole-grain cookies (try oatmeal raisin or whole-wheat chocolate chip)
• Wasabi peas
• Trail mix
• Dried mixed fruit
If you do purchase food at the beach choose things described as “grilled” not “fried”
When packing a cooler for the beach, don’t forget plenty of water! Refresh yourself on a hot day with a thermos of cold water and ice (add lemon/lime to jazz it up). If you crave something fizzy, trade soda for calorie-free sparkling water.
Reminder to pack your cooler with plenty of ice if you’re bringing perishable foods to the beach and remember to Stay Hydrated!
Dehydration warning signs include:
• Thirst
• Headache
• Dry, sticky mouth
• Decreased urine output
• Sleepiness or tiredness
• Dizziness or lightheadedness
